Inveraray Castle & Loch Lomond
Experience Scotland's rugged highlands, lochs and glens on a scenic drive to Loch Lomond.
Cross Erskine Bridge with distant views of Glasgow as you travel to Loch Lomond.
The loch's wide, southern end is dotted with small islands, and its northern end narrows to resemble a fjord.
From Loch Lomond, you will drive through Glen Croe and Glen Kinglas. The road twists and turns through the highlands, offering both mountain and glen views. Descend to Loch Fyne and Inveraray.
Tour Inveraray Castle, one of the earliest examples of Gothic Revival and Scots Baronial architecture, the castle, which dates from 1770, is the seat of the Duke of Argyll, head of the Campbell clan.
The highlights of your tour will include the collection of family portraits, tapestries, and the Armory Hall, which alone contains 1,300 pieces of art, and finely appointed rooms boasting an exquisite collection of French 18th-century furniture, English china, family artifacts and objects d'art.
Continue on to Luss. This pretty village sits on the west shore of Loch Lomond. In Gaelic, "lus" means plant or herb; the village in spring and summer is a riot of color from roses and wildflowers.
Stroll the village and view the stone cottages, or walk out onto the pier for a closer look at Loch Lomond. The loch's "bonny banks" are famed in song and legend.
Pause at Rest and Be Thankful, a great viewpoint overlooking the highland glens and mountains.
Return to the ship, traveling along Loch Eck and Holy Loch to Hunters Quay, where you take a ferry across the River Clyde and then drive to Greenock.
